From what I see, your energy rates are still low even with the increase;
CHICAGO, June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – As of June 1, Ameren Illinois’ price for electricity will be more than 10 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), a 120 percent increase over what it was last summer, the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) said Wednesday.
According to the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), Ameren’s summer “price to compare”—the rate customers should compare with alternative supplier offers—from June 1 to September 30 will be:
10.628 cents per kWh
Note: This rate includes the supply price, a transmission charge and a supply cost adjustment. Ameren does not profit off the price of electricity—they pass those costs onto customers with no markup. A new non-summer supply rate, which has yet to be announced, will take effect Oct. 1.
Ameren Illinois has estimated the higher prices will cost customers an average of $52 a month extra, or more than $620 in higher total bills through May 2023.
